Just created this using Picasa - a free download from Google. It was suggested by the new Quiltwow - Quilters version of Workshop on the Web- free workshop Postcards from the Edge bty Carol Dowsett. Will print it out as she suggests later and then stitch. Had a lot of fun
doing this could become another great time waster. I think the addy for this is but I am not sure.

The picture has come out very pink/purple-but it actually has more brown/dark orange
All I need now is to figure out how to upload to fibreandstitch group photos.
Also cannot seem to get photos on blog and words to line up?

This is my attempt at Lutradur and Lace
and the outside!
This is the inside of another padfolio

Gina was mentioning in her blog RAKs - random acts of kindness. Today I was the recepient
of a RAK. Annette Morgan gave me a copy of her CD book - Gltzy Quilts. I was so pleased, it has really made my day. So thoughtful. I have had a quick browse and it look really good.
It can be ordered from
Also today got the new book from Fibrefusion (Pauline Verrinder's group) called On Form.
It was the book launch at Art Van Go today. This also looks very good.
You may have gathered by now, I am a bit of a bookaholic. Try a random act of kindness
it makes the recepient feel sooo good.

Picture not that clear although I had camera on macro. Need to learn how to use properly. Especially as younger daughter is doing a photography degree! Hope she doesn't see this. Thought it might make a nice cord to wrap around a small padfolio. Small being the operative word. Its quite time consuming but as I said,
Whilst looking for something else, came across this yesterday - its so easy to make a cord/braid just jump two threads , tun clockwise. Thats it.
Mind less really. Used stranded cotton in two colours 4 of one 3 or the other comes out like this.
